Not All Easy.....2

† † † †Not All Easy.....2

Lifeís wars are mainly in the dark

With self; demonic weed

Yet none would ever fail the mark

Where Christ is free to lead

Jesus The Saviour of oneís soul

The Guarding of oneís heart

Seeing how oft we lose control

How much from truth we part

Easy is not for will to die

Ridding of greed and lust

Until we look to Christ on high††

For self to turn to dust

His Spirit sees the mind thatís true

The heart that seeks the Light

The inward drive to start anew

The will in truth to fight

Heaven can hear true servantís cries

Loving a humble mind

Knowing whoís lost through Satanís lies

Who to The Truth are blind

But when Godís Lamb we come to eat

When Fire runs through our veins

Our every need Jesus will meet

To break our selfish chains

If when these things we understand

If when we seek Godís face

Jesus will stretch His mighty hand

With love and endless grace

Eternal joy, eternal bliss

Eternal life above

Exchanging Satanís fleeting kiss

For Godís eternal loveÖ..

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
